First, I placed a Basic White panel on my table as a template.

I then covered and secured a Ziploc-type plastic bag over it.

Next, I began coloring on the plastic with the alcohol markers. Basically, scribble with various colors. You do want to keep the colors separate, otherwise, you may wind up with a muddy mess.

I then spritzed the colors with alcohol until they looked wet.

Next, I placed the glossy side down on the ink and let it sit for a few seconds to lift up the ink. I carefully lifted it, and there was my background. In hindsight, I should have dabbed the edges with a paper towel. Still, I did like my final background.

I let it dry for a minute and placed it in my Stamparatus. Using StazOn ink, I stamped my image.
